Whether we realize it or not, God gives us all the ability to be exceptional in different areas. Depending on His plan for your life, your talent could be something that you never imagined yourself doing. He may bless some of us with the ability to play a particular sport, leading us to getting athletic scholarships or becoming a successful professional athlete. Or He may provide some of us with the ability to sing extremely well, well enough to land us a record deal. No matter who you are, each and every one of us as children of God have a given talent. And because of this, God wants us to put our talents to good use.
Sometimes, it may take us awhile to realize exactly what our talents are. It can even take another person to recognize your talents. But once you realize that you are good at something and discover your talents, it is up to you to exercise them. And if you don’t put them to good use, God will take them away from you. God given talents are very precious things to have. And they should not be overlooked by us or anyone. Using our talents can open up so many doors for us, leading to wealth, dream jobs or overall happiness in general.
When God blesses you with these special gifts, it is ultimately up to you to put them to good use. And if He sees that you aren’t using your talents or using them in a way that is displeasing in His eyes, then He will take them away from you. God given talents are priceless and should be treated as such. When given the opportunity to show the world what the talent that you possess, we should never back down from a chance like that. God gives us all the capability to do great things in life. But it is up to us to put them into action.
